As expected by the news yesterday that Neil Taylor was close to signing a new deal at Swansea City, Sky Sports is now reporting that left-back Neil Taylor has indeed signed a new four-year deal with Swansea.
Neil Taylor – sings new deal for Swansea.
Newcastle thought they had a deal for £1M for the left-back a few weeks ago, because of a £1M release clause in Taylor’s contract, but Swansea wouldn’t do the deal.
However, this chapter is now closed with Neil Taylor deciding to sign a new deal for Swansea City, and he’ll not now be coming to Newcastle.
The news comes after Swansea manager Brendan Rodgers had said yesterday that the left back would soon be signing a new deal for Swansea – to the astonishment of Newcastle officials.
It seems like a 180 degrees switch by the 22 year-old player, after Neil had been reported to be so keen to join Newcastle United.
But if players don’t want to come to Newcastle that’s fine, it’s their choice, and they shouldn’t come.
So we can now cross Neil Taylor off the list as a potential Newcastle signing, but we wonder who’s still on that list?
